MOUNTD(8C)                                                          MOUNTD(8C)



NAME
       mountd, rpc.mountd - NFS mount request server

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/rpc.mountd [ -n ]

AVAILABILITY
       This  program  is  available  with the Networking software installation
       option.  Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

DESCRIPTION
       mountd is an RPC server that answers file system  mount  requests.   It
       reads  the  file /etc/xtab, described in exports(5), to determine which
       file systems are available for mounting by  which  machines.   It  also
       provides  information  as  to  what  file  systems are mounted by which
       clients.  This information can be printed using the  showmount(8)  com-
       mand.

       The mountd daemon is normally invoked by rc(8).

OPTIONS
       -n     Do not check that the clients are root users. Though this option
              makes things slightly less secure, it does allow older  versions
              (pre-3.0) of client NFS to work.

FILES
       /etc/xtab
